If you want to fun night out with a bunch of mates, going to the casino is always a good option. Alongside having a few drinks and a chat, there’s another focus – being able to test your gambling skills at games like roulette, blackjack and poker and seeing if you can do better than everyone else and bring home the biggest wins.

However, if you live somewhere where it’s not that easy to get to a casino, it sometimes feels like too much effort to organise. So why not get everyone over to your place for a casino night instead? If you already have your own man cave set up, so much the better, but thanks to the existence of online casinos, it’s possible to play casino games pretty much anywhere these days.

What you’ll need

  1. Decide which games to include

The best way to decide which games you’ll have at your casino night is to play casino online. Then you’ll get a feel of which games you enjoy the most, and which would work best for a group. At 32Red Casino there are more than 500 casino games to play; including old favourites like roulette and blackjack as well as a huge array of slots. There are step-by-step instructions for how to get started on the home page. You can also take advantage of sign-up bonuses so that you maximise the cash you have to play with – the site will add £32 to every £10 you put in as a first deposit. Once you’re signed up and have loaded some cash into your account, you’ll be able to sample all the different games. It’s worth remembering that you can use ‘free play’ mode when you play a game you’re not familiar with – no point wasting real money while you’re learning the ropes. You can also send the casino app to your mobile device so you can get some more practice in when you’re out and about.

  1. Equipment

If you’re going down the online route for your casino night party, you’ll only need some different devices to play on. Get people to bring their tablets or phones with them, so you can all login to the same site to play or set it up on the big screen so that everyone can take turns playing. At 32Red and 21 Casino there’s also the live casino option, where you have a live link to a real dealer placing your bet, spinning the roulette wheel or dealing out your blackjack hand. You could also include extra competitive elements such as Unibet’s daily casino tournaments.

If on the other hand, you want to have the physical equipment in the room with you, it’s easy enough to organise. There are lots of different casino hire companies online these days and they offer a range of different services – from supplying the gaming equipment only through to running the whole night for you, with croupiers and dealers to man the tables, as well as a barman. Obviously it all depends on how much of a budget you’ve got for the night, and how big an occasion it is. For instance, if it was a big birthday or other special occasion you might go the whole hog, but if it’s just a few of you who want to play games, then you’ll only need the equipment hire.

  1. The bar

Aside from the casino equipment itself, the only other thing you’ll need to do is get the bar stocked. Again, it depends on how big a ‘do’ you’re having – you might just ask everyone to bring their tipple of choice and serve themselves; or you might want to get someone to be the barman for the night. Similarly, you might want to include some casino-themed snacks…or not.

Finally, don’t forget to tell everyone whether your casino night has a formal or casual dress code! Putting on a casino night is a simple way to create a themed evening that is fun for everyone involved.
